Stewart Paroled

The Mississippi Parole Board issued the following statement.


Paul M. Stewart, #65682 was granted parole eligibility December 13, 2015. He was denied parole upon his first review March 29, 2018. The Parole Board members voted to approve Paul Stewart's parole October 23, 2019. The members of Board reviewed the facts of the case, the age (17) of the offender at the time of the crime, successful completion of rehabilitative programs offered by MDOC, his lack of rule violations, the remorse he expressed for his involvement in the crime, the fact that Stewart was not the killer in the crime were the reasons why he was paroled. The Board also considered the results of a psychiatric evaluation and the re-entry plan as a part of deliberations. Stewart has been incarcerated 24 years. Edwin Hart Turner, the adult killer of the two victims was executed February 8, 2012," said Steven Pickett.

Who the hell is Stewart, what was his crime. And why is this parole any different than the hund4eds/thousands of others that Pickett has paroled over the past several years?

He heard the cell door slam at age 17. Today he's 41, breathing fresh air. I hope he can assimilate. He was a kid then and has spent over half his life in jail. Recidivism is likely.

I'd love to see a "where are they now" report of all of the scum that Haley Barbour pardoned.

Really. It's amazing how many blowhard keyboard warriors won't or can't or don't know how to perform basic research. That would be too much to ask. That and checking several sources before they go all ballistic over the first thing they find. Some of these morons don't even realize they're reading sarcasm like The Onion. But I saw it on Breitbart, it must be true!

Are the two people he helped kill still dead?

2:08 AM, go back to sleep. Nice try to throw crap, but most all of those "200 scum" you refer to were had been out of the pokey for years when they got pardoned. Living their lives with a record, but having served their time. I know you would like to infer that there were a couple hundred mother killers turned loose on the streets, but that story doesn't match up with the facts.

OK 9:48 - let me ask this another way, maybe you can understand better the question.

The MS Parole Board pardoned Stewart. Why is this noteworthy, since they parole folks day in and day out. The fact that they paroled this guy makes news, and makes JJ as a post that should matter. Why?

Details of the crime:
---------------------------------------
Turner's accomplice, Paul Murrell Stewart (Stewart), confessed his involvement in the robberies and murders. Stewart pled guilty to two counts of capital murder and received consecutive life sentences without parole. As part of his plea agreement, he agreed to testify.

At trial, Stewart testified that he and Turner spent the night of December 12 and the early morning hours of December 13, 1997, driving around Carroll and Leflore Counties drinking beer and smoking marijuana. They decided to rob a convenience store. Turner was armed with a 6 millimeter rifle, and Stewart was armed with a .243 rifle. They drove to Mims One Stop on U.S. Highway 82 between Carrollton and Greenwood. After surveying the scene, they decided that the store was too crowded so they left and drove west to another convenience store on Highway 82.

The second store, Mims Turkey Village Truck Stop, was occupied only by one clerk, Eddie Brooks. As Turner and Stewart entered the store, Turner ordered Brooks to get down on the floor. Before Brooks could comply, Turner shot him in the chest with the 6 millimeter rifle. However, neither Turner nor Stewart could open the cash register. Both fired their rifles into the cash register, but it still wouldn't open. Meantime, Brooks was still alive, lying wounded on the floor. Before they fled the scene, Turner placed the barrel of his rifle to Brooks's face and pulled the trigger. The second shot proved to be fatal.

After failing to obtain money from the cash register, Turner and Stewart decided to return to Mims One Stop. They parked behind the store and headed toward the door. Stewart went into the store and ordered the cashier to open the cash register.

Turner encountered Everett Curry pumping gas in front of the store. While Stewart was inside robbing the store, Turner ordered Curry to the ground and took cash from Curry's wallet.

As Curry laid on the ground pleading for his life, Turner unmercifully shot him in the head. Meanwhile, Stewart took approximately $400 from the cash register. The two fled the scene and returned to Turner's house. Curry was abandoned to die.

Turner and his accomplice Stewart are white. The murder victims were African-American.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
